12 May 4) In order to promote international unification, IEC national IEC has been prepared by sub-committee 65A: System aspects, of IEC. IEC contains the definitions and explanation of terms that are used in parts 1 to 7 of the IEC series of standards. The definitions are. 13 Sep IS/IEC Functional safety of electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems, Part 4: Definitions and abbreviations.

This unified approach iec 61508-4 been adopted in order that a rational and consistent technical policy be developed for all electrically baseo safety-related systems. The failure of a safety-related system would be included m the events leading to the determined iec 61508-4 or hazards.


If computer system technology is to be effectively and safely exploited, it is essential that those responsible for making decisions have sufficient guidance on the safety aspects on which to make those decisions. The definitions are grouped under general iec 61508-4 so that related terms can iec 61508-4 understood within the context iec 61508-4 each other.
